About bLUeprint


“This is your world. Shape it or someone else will.” – Gary J. Lew

Imagine this: Your Lehigh experience is a blank page waiting to be filled – with your goals, your vision, your interests… in short, all that is you. Pen in hand and boundless possibilities at your fingertips, you can create the experience you’ve always wanted and achieve the success you’ve always imagined.

The good news? This is your reality! What kind of Lehigh life will you design? How will you spend the 92 hours or so a week you have outside the classroom? What opportunities will you include? Who will share your experience? How will you measure your success? More importantly, how will you use that success to positively impact the world around you?

These are big questions you are facing, but you won’t face them alone. bLUeprint is your chance to receive coaching, practice inquiry, and clarify values toward a unique expression of yourself. It is an opportunity for you to direct your personal Lehigh experience. As a result, you will be well-equipped for life after Lehigh and will be prepared and inspired to make significant contributions to the world around you.

Through bLUeprint’s 5 Foundations for Student Success, you will have access to conversations, individuals, and opportunities that invite you to actively engage in your Lehigh experience. While these conversations will happen all over campus, you will first experience bLUeprint at Orientation as well as while living in the residence halls with your Gryphon and fellow residents. You will also explore the Foundations of bLUeprint through organizational involvement, athletic pursuits, volunteer opportunities, etc. – in essence, at every turn of your Lehigh life. bLUeprint is a premiere strategy for maximizing your college experience, connecting your academic and co-curricular learning, and shaping your personal development while in college.                       

We are thrilled to be a part of your design team as you sketch your way to success. We hope that you accept our invitation to deeply immerse yourself in this experience.

If you have any questions or feedback, do not hesitate to contact us at bLUeprint@lehigh.edu. As with any bLUeprint, we are actively shaping this initiative to best meet students’ needs and interests. We would love for you to partner with us in this initiative!
